I took about 2 years for the mushroom to cover the whole tank like that. Once they do, they multiply fast. I keeping taking out the loose ones or trim them back often.
That is a beautiful tank. You are more than worthy of TOTM! How long did it take for the mushrooms to grow that much?

Now, once in a while, I take a handful of macroalgae from a different tank and add them in this reef. I keep them in a breeder box in the tank for a few weeks. This is just to keep the water in check.
I've never had a problem with nitrate.
Great looking tank. I hope mine looks half as good as yours when it matures.
I was wondering, do you ever have any nitrate problems without running a refugium?

I'm addicted to placebos. I could quit but it wouldn't matter.

Your tank looks very nice! I'm actually trying to figure out how to start my own 15g, and your tanks is a good source of inspiration and motivation.
Also, I'm glad to see that a tank can thrive on a "not so fancy", affordable lighting system. Sure looks like it plenty enough for your needs anyways.
